Arcania: FoS - Review @ GameStar.de

by Dhruin, 23:37

We recently mentioned the German review of Fall of Setarrif from GameStar but the actual text is now available. According to my Google-fu, they say it is "an empty world (almost) devoid of quests" and "monotonous, continuous battles".

Thanks, Sir_Brennus!

by Dhruin, 22:04

Arcania: FoS - Indefinite Delay

by Dhruin, 21:03

"Indefinite delay" is usually code for "cancelled" but we'll hold judgment until the details are clear. At any rate, several sites are reporting JoWood's Arcania expandalone is on hold because of legal issues. Undoubtedly one of those issues is that JoWood is once again at death's door. From Rock, Paper, Shotgun (thanks, Roi Danton):

JoWood are being pretty cryptic about the reason for the axe falling, merely revealing that some sort of legal tussle has led to an indefinite delay. “The legal background of the official add-on to “ArcaniA – Gothic 4” is unclear and diverse legal positions with the BVT fund that financed the main game are present.”
